Petition to hire school resource officer dead in Newfound school district
But because of a change made by residents at a deliberative session, that’s likely not going to happen this year.
The school board split its vote at the original funding level of $51,840 on the article by a vote of 3-3-1, and thus failed to recommend it, with board members from Bristol, Danbury and New Hampton opposing it, and Bridgewater, Alexandria and Groton voted in favor.
The district’s budget committee opposed the article unanimously.
At the deliberative session, the board revisited its vote on the zero-funded amended article, but once again failed to support it, with Danbury voting in favor of zero-funding. Bridgewater voted to oppose the zero-funded amendment, and the remaining five members of the board abstained, which resulted in the board’s failure to recommend the amended article.
“No matter whether the voters decide to support or defeat the article, because it was amended to zero dollars, the board cannot implement the assignment because it would be approved with no funding.
District residents will vote on a $21.8 million budget proposal.
Also on the ballot is a new three-year teacher contract. The school board voted 6-1 in favor of the contract. New Hampton’s board member voted against it. The budget committee opposed the new contract unanimously.
